's the latest mickey mouse gimmick to win elections without having to win the most number of votes. remember the tricks they tried in 2012? all those changes in the voting times, all those cuts in the number of voting booths, all that effort to make it harder for people to vote? all that targeting of the people who tend to vote in ways the remembers don't like people voting? remember all that? well, now they're trying something new. they don't like that states like pennsylvania regularly vote democratic. so some political quacks came up with the idea of breaking up the state's electoral votes so the rural areas will get more power. they don't like the urban vote, as they call it, going to democratic. so they decided to kill its power over how the state goes overall. look, the real fight here is by the republicans against the country's shifting demographics. if they don't get or can't get people to vote for them they try to kill the power of those who don't. will they get away with it? not if you stay tuned and keep an eye on these little buggers. they've got their mickey mouse ears on, they'
the next election. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout, especially in urban areas. >> forget policy. if you can't win it, just go ahead and rig it. the gop moves to steal elections. first stop? virginia. david corn and charnelle herring tell us if the dirty move could work. the right still can't handle hillary. >> she obviously has an enduring media. >> so the king of the sunday shows bites the hand that feeds him. >> the president's vision for his second term to annihilate the republican party. >> richard wolffee on the republican party's new nerve. >>> democrats just missed a huge opportunity to change the o'country. larry cohen on harry reiding filibuster cave. >>> women get overdue recognition to serve in combat. the right wing is freaking out. former marine goldie taylor is here to put them in their place. >>> thanks for watching. it's time to wake up, america. got to pay attention to this one. the republican attempt to steal the next presidential election, it has hit full throttle. this is the lat

in benghazi, and the israeli elections when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: we begin this evening with secretary of state clinton on capitol hill. lawmakers questions her earlier today about the september 11, 2012 attacks on the american consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans were killed that day, including ambassador christopher stevens. secretary clinton's testimony had been post toned until now. she took responsibility and emsized her commitment to improving diplomat security abroad. >> as i have mentioned many times i take responsibility and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger, and more secure. now, taking responsibility meant moving quickly in those first uncertain hours and days to respond to the immediate crisis, but, also, to further protect our people and posts in high-threat areas across the region and the world. it meant launching an independent investigation to determine exactly what happened in b
. with the nothing in the 2012 national election behind them, and the risk of demographic doom at the hands of surging minority groups growing every day the g.o.p. is making an all-out effort to reboot the whole brand. last night luis boy governor bobby jindal had this advice for his party at the republican national committee's winter meeting in charlotte, north carolina. >> we got to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious. it's time for the new republican party that talks like adults. it's time for us to articulate our plans and visions for america in real terms. it's no secret that we had a number of republicans that damaged the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. i'm here to say we've had enough of that. >> john: just how the party plans to keep four todd akin and richard mourdock's from disgorging off-hand comments on legitimate rape and rape-born children as something god intend intended remains to be seen. but reince priebus the g.o.p. chair has vision of a renewed republican party. we can renewt americans around our values if we can prove we can take them to a bet
the election, he drew some very clear lines on fiscal cliff, for example. i mean he said, tax rates on wealthy individuals had have to go up. that's a firmer way of approaching these then he sometimes did in the past. >> dan, one of the things that was very different from his first speech is that this speech he didn't appear to talk to republicans. and nor did he reach out to the middle. when we talk about that it was a very -- had a lot of progressive elements in it, they were applause lines that seemed directed right at core democratic constituencies. so who do you think his target audience was? is the country behind him now or is it once again he's just solidified the same base we've come to know the last four years? >> i think he's concluded, and i think it's a fair conclusion, there are voters in this country who will not be with him. years ago or seven or eight years ago, we talked about how democrats were looking for ways to win over rural america. this speech that he gave is an indication that he's not looking to try to win over rural america. there are some democrats in states with a
on what happened to them in the last election. gun control. more republicans backing things like background checks, they stand a good chance of getting stuff done in the next year, while the president has the leverage on his side. >> okay. let's look at another couple of challenges for you, ed. sequestration, that starts march 1st. debt ceiling suspension expiring on may 19th. you think the president's policy goals will get bogged down because of these upcoming deadlines? >> that's an interesting question. we are trying to sort that one out. this punt into may, with the debt ceiling suggests that it buys everyone time on fiscal issues and might allow congress to turn its attention to immigration and gun control and other issues. certainly, the fiscal debate isn't going anywhere. a big question, will sequestration indeed happen if it does happen, does it happen assith currently written, do we make changes or the white house come up with a way to stave it off and get republicans and democrats to agree? a big push under way to get started on gun control, immigration, hearings next w
elections, drowning out the voices of ordinary american citizens eager to participate in the political process. citizens united also epitomizes the so-called corporate personhood movement in which some now say the corporations are people. the fact is corporations are not people, and the constitution was never intended to give corporations the same rights as the american people. corporations don't breathe. they don't have kids, and they don't die in wars. my constituents continue to express concern about the growing influence of corporations in our political discourse. they're also demanding action on campaign finance reform because they are repulsed by the large amount of money in our campaigns. and quite frankly, they want elected officials to spend more time on policy, deliberating and debating on issues and less time dialing for dollars. unfortunately, the republican leadership in the house has failed to address these pressing issues during the past two years. they have been indifferent. we haven't had the opportunity to vote on any legislation to curb the influence of unlimited and
about whether or not you're in favor of term limits for all elected officials. termresident already has limits. your governors, senators, mayors, city council, dog catcher, tax collector. are you in favor of term limits, yes or no? here are the numbers. host: you can also reach out to us by social media. host: i want to show you some of the numbers from the recently released gallup poll. they ask americans support for establishing term limits for federal lawmakers. suppose on election day you could vote for key issues as well as candidates. or againstote for the number of terms congress and senate can serve? nationally among adults those voting for term limits are in the 75% range. those who say they would vote against term limits, 21%. those who had no opinion, 5%. breaking it down among political parties, republicans, those voting for, who say they would vote for term limits, 82% of republicans questioned in this gallup poll, 82% say they would vote for term limits. 15% say they would vote against. 3% say they have no opinion. independence, 79% say they would vote for term limits. 17%
-than-expected showing in tuesday's elections. near-final totals showed his bloc and its allies had only 60 of 120 seats in parliament. netanyahu signaled he'll reach out to a new centrist party that made a strong showing. it favors a new focus on making peace with the palestinians. this was election day in jordan. voters cast ballots in the country's first parliamentary elections since the arab spring. the new legislature will have more power, including the ability to choose the next prime minister. some two million people were eligible to go to the polls. turnout estimates varied from a high of 56% to as low as 47% as the day went on. several islamist groups boycotted, saying the election was stacked against them. but the prime minister dismissed their actions. >> ( translated ): the weakness of the turnout, if it exists, and i am not saying that, nobody should think that it is because of the boycott. it is not correct. otherwise anyone would think if there was any hesitation for the elections it's because people were neither convinced with past elections nor with the performance of the past parliamen
have that very long, hard, primary campaign. in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. and i worked very hard, but i lost. and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state. and i said yes. and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> let me bring in political reporter for "u.s. news and world report" lauren fox and white house reporter david nakimura. david the first sit down interview the president has done with anyone other than the first lady. why do this? why do it now? >> i think t.j. the timing is secretary of state has served for four years. now she's leaving. she's had a bit of a tough run lately with her personal health and the situation in benghazi where the consulate came under attack. four diplomats were killed. she was in a hearing just last week. i think the president wanted to sit down and show a real thanks first of all and a show of support as she leaves. it will be interesting obviously as speculation comes in a couple of years whether she'll run for president against possibl
has his eye towards the general election, that he does not see his advantage in being as obstructionist as he was the last two years. he has an obvious advantage in kentucky. it is a red state. it is possible that there could be a democrat that could come up, if there is too much frustration. he is the senate, as much as harry reid is, because he is a party leader. congress's approval rating is in the single digits. that is not exactly something you want when you're going before voters. the more he can look reasonable, the better he looks. host: ryan grim, explaining some of the changes to the filibuster rule. he is the washington bureau chief for the -- for "the huffington post." back to your calls -- we're focusing on the pentagon lifting the ban on combat roles for women. on twitter -- from our facebook page -- tracey says -- sac joins us from philadelphia, good morning, on the democrats' line. -- zach joins us from philadelphia, good morning, on the democrats' line. caller: when we look at the labor market, allowing men and women to serve together, it will have hug
in the november election. republican members are hunkered down at the annual winter meeting in north carolina. they reelected the committee chairman. the talk is extremely harsh at times with one prominent republican leader using the word stupid to describe the way he said the party has been behaving. let's bring in the political director on the scene for us. he is joining us with the latest information. pretty harsh words over there. >> yeah, there is. look, wolf, the republicans have come to grips with the results of the election. they did not win back the white house. they lost in the house of representatives and of course democrats remained in control of the united states senate. a lot of soul searching over the past couple of days for members of the republican national committee. these are the grass roots activists who come all across the country who make up the republican party. as you said, harsh words from the louisiana governor, bobby jindal who had to say this last night. >> we have got to stop being stupid. it's time for a new republican party that talks like it does. articulate ou
in the past election. host: on twitter -- james in dickinson, texas, democratic caller. caller: good morning. that was a great speech that the president and vice president spoke yesterday. i have been watching it ever since it came on. i want to say hello to my pastor at the baptist church. i'm sure he's listening, and to all the church members. host: a little bit more from president obama's speech yesterday, talking about defending democracy abroad. [video clip] >> we still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. [[cheers and applause] our brave men and women in uniform tempered by the flames of battle are unmatched in skill and courage. our citizens, feared by the memory of those we have lostthoseknow too well the price it has paid for liberty. the knowledge of their sacrifice will keep us forever vigilant against those who would do us harm. but we are also heirs to those who won the peace and not just the war. we have turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends and we must carry those lessons into this time as well. we will defend our people and
at the numbers. 55 democrats, 45 republicans currently. in 2014, 33 seats will be up for re-election. don't go the way of general elections. congressman frost what do you think is going to happen? >> well, first of all, this is a subject i know a fair amount about. i was chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee in 1998, the last time you had the so-called six year itch when the president's party is supposed to lose seats in the sixth year of the president's term. we actually picked up five seats in the house and we broke even in the senate. but what is happening here is that the republican party actually had this same opportunity in 2010 and 2012 and they nominated candidates that were too far to the right and lost some races they shouldn't have lost that happened in missouri and in indiana and in this last election it happened in delaware and colorado and nevada two years before that we will have to see what happens. if the republican party keeps nominating people too far to the right, they may snatch defeat out of jaws of victory once again. >> interesting you brought up t
in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that way. listen to this. senator kennedy stood with you and, senator mccain, you were standing with him, and he said 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system. we must strike while the iron is hot. what makes you think, why is this year different? >> elections. elections. >> the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we thing we're in agreement with our hispanic sit steps but this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. >> wolf, it's important to underscore that we really did see some of the people who have been here before, with senator kennedy and others half a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that
insist they better change or risk further election. >>> a wave of unrest leaves more than 50 dead and a state of emergency in egypt over islamist policy. >>> ice storms and snow headed to the mideast. a possible breakthrough to help migraine sufferers. and the president obama on hillary clinton and the outlook for 2013. >> you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> and a very good morning to you. nice to see you today. i'm veronica de la cruz. this week, president obama puts immigration reform front and center on his agenda. on tuesday he will outline his overhaul in a major speech in las vegas, and even a bipartisan group of senators is on board to reform the system that impacts 11 million undocumented people in america. tracie potts has details for us. good morning. >> reporter: veronica, good morning. remember, this was a first-term promise not kept by president obama. tough time getting this through
believes since the re-election, the president has gotten more come bative. in the latest fox poll released shortly before the inauguration, 55% of voters said he has been more confrontationm toward congressional republicans. only 30% said he has been more bipartisan. >> i regret that i didn't hear one word from the president about it's time we all sat down and worked together. an addressed these issues that are confronting the nation. it is what it is. >> white house officials note the president tried for weeks to work out a budget deal with boehner. >> even though - wildly recognized to have been made in good faith and to have represented an effort to meet the republicans halfway, the republicans walked away. >> now boehner's aides note the president warned the speaker if he didn't agree to tax increases and a long-term hi ceiling, the president would campaign against him for the next two years, charging he caused another recession. which is why boehner's aides say anailiation is the right word. >> bret: ed henry live on the north lawn. thank you. what do republicans plan to do about it?
on this from day one after the election. i think they're ready to come out with something. i think you're going to see that marco rubio has laid a lot of the groundwork by selling these principles. he's gotten great enzorsment and support from one of the most right wing pun makers. now it's time to act upon it and grow it from there. it is basically the only thing happening in congress today, where there is a bipartisan movement on both chambers and both sides of the aisle. >> the election is a long time ago, i've been hearing this a long time ago. why wait? why haven't we heard anything from them? why are they waiting on a president? >> because timing is everything. you know what, if i were you, i wouldn't put money on them waiting on the president. the president's going to speak on tuesday. i wouldn't be surprised if these senators who are tremendously strategic and know how to play the political game -- i wouldn't be surprised if they preempt the president, maybe do it tomorrow. maybe do it before the president on tuesday. these are not folks that wait on the president. these folks act. >> y
with everything even though they have a bad rating, it doesn't affect their chance of being re-elected. unfortunately, they have been stacking in state legislatures and in the house of representatives, all of these anti-choice laws that are every egregious wiggle they can come in. none of them, by the way would stand up against roe v. wade because there are so many price of concerns in the fetal heart beat bill. they're adding things like she has to be taped listening to it. the fact she's in the office being scrutinized or filmed while she's getting a medical procedure or -- >> it is a violation of privacy. >> hal: it is absurd. >> they do things even so much as -- i don't know if it's law necessarily or if it's just the doctor's preference to find out how far along the woman is but they'll have you get a sonogram and that can be traumatic. >> yeah. >> just making that decision, having to see what is growing at that moment can be traumatic for a woman. unless you're in that position, it is inappropriate for someone to make that change on your behalf. >> hal: i believe that to be the g
